Virtual school

From Monday 23 March, until further notice, The Academy at Shotton Hall is operating virtually, to minimise disruption to students' education as much as possible during this difficult and unprecedented time. We are therefore providing links to useful learning resources which students can use at home.

Students - what you should do:

  • It is really important for your future to keep working hard and follow the school routine as far as you can.
  • Log on to your school email at least twice a day, to check for messages from teachers and make sure you understand what work you need to complete. 
  • Follow your normal timetable as much as possible.
  • Complete all work to the best of your ability and as neatly as possible. 

Parents/carers - what you can do if your child is studying from home:

  • Provide a quiet space for your child to work in. 

  • Encourage your child to complete all work to the best of their ability and as neatly as possible. 

  • Ask your child about the work they are doing and help them where you can; a great way of doing this is by testing them on what they have learned. 

  • Keep your child’s email login details safe and remind them of them where necessary. 

  • If you have any general queries, please contact the school enquiry line on

What to do if your child is ill:

  • If your child in unable to attend school because they are unwell or because they are self-isolating because of a family member being unwell, please report this as usual to school. 

  • Please follow NHS guidance in relation to Coronavirus: 

We understand that this is a difficult and worrying time, and we aim to keep parents and students updated and informed regularly in relation to what is happening with school. Please check our website for further updates.
